- Apr 5, 2005To start a search you would need to know where the person was in
1930. First (or nickname) and last name and spouses name.Approximate
age in 1930 or birthyear. Colored or white.From there it's not
terribly difficult to trace them back through the census.If the
individual was born after 1930, your best bet is to send to the state
or county office that has their birth certificate records.It's
getting a bit expensive to obtain birth death and marriage
certificates though. I'm thinking some of them are around 22 dollars
and that only covers a three year period search. Or check the SSDI
(free on line)if you know when and where they died and see when they
were born.Also most area libraries have microfilm of the newspapers
back to the early 1900's and some back into the late 1800's.You can
check page by page for birth and death notices.
The census' online are a good place to start though. If you want to
send a little more information, I'm sure some of us would be more
than glad to check the census' for you. Good luck with your search.
